P. H. Sawyer takes an analytical approach, devoting chapters to social organization, the changing character of kingship, the royal government and the power of the church. Particular attention is paid to the history of settlement, the making of the landscape, the growth of towns and trade that made eleventh century England one of the most highly urbanized areas of western Europe. Sawyer also emphasizes the influence of British, Roman, Frankish, Viking and Christian that helped shape English society and contributed to the making of the United Kingdom. There is a full bibliography and the text is complemented by maps that provide a detailed informative account of the post-Roman English society.
